What is a Farm Collie?
Our Farm Collie is a Rough Collie line that has been outcrossed with the goal of bringing in fresh alleles and traits that have been lost over the generations.
Outcrossing is a way to introduce new, unrelated genetic material into a breed or breeding line, increasing genetic diversity. This can have numerous benefits, such as reducing the risk of diseases and genetic abnormalities, improving longevity and birth rates, and avoiding inbreeding depression. With outcrossing, modern genetic material is introduced while still staying within the boundaries of the breed.
For the past 10 years, our focus has been on bringing the very best Rough Collies to our program. We have meticulously sought out dogs with exceptional working abilities, undergone thorough genetic testing, and ensured excellent temperaments for generations. Our aim has always been to produce Rough Collies with low to moderate drive.
In addition to our Rough Collies, we have also carefully selected 3-OTSC (Old-time Scotch Collie) type lines to enhance our breeding program. We are excited to announce that we will soon be offering select litters with Miniature American Shepherds. Our OTSC dogs possess light to moderate coats, exhibit good genetics, and have excellent temperaments with a moderate drive.
Here at Wind Whispers, we strive for several key qualities in our dogs. First and foremost, we prioritize temperament as a #1 requirement. Then, structure and workability, ensuring that our dogs are well-suited for their intended tasks. We also place a strong emphasis on fresh allele and genetic diversity, recognizing the importance of maintaining a healthy and diverse gene pool.
Furthermore, we prioritize the health, beauty, and elegance of our Collies. We believe that a Collie should not only be physically sound, but also visually appealing. Additionally, we place great importance on biddability, willingness, and temperament. Our dogs are known for their friendly and cooperative nature, making them a joy to work with.
Lastly, we value intelligence and aim to produce dogs that are not only family-friendly, but also farm-friendly. We understand the importance of having a versatile dog that can adapt to various environments and tasks.
In summary, our breeding program is dedicated to producing Rough Collies with exceptional qualities. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of health, temperament, and working abilities. With our carefully selected lines and upcoming litters with Miniature American Shepherds, we are excited to continue our journey of breeding outstanding dogs.
